This poem is a repose to the death of Mr George Floyd in Mineapolis MN.
So again tonight the blackness of smoke is rising to the heavens all across America. And Heaven knows the reasons.
The red is flaring, it is updated and hot. Nowhere is safer than the land of the brave and the home of the free. The crackle of flame illuminates my point.
Yellow is the conflagration, the heat is being drawn. Are the people being treated like they are naturally targetable? Is it inevitable, all this black death?
We saw it in horror, we didn’t believe our eyes. A person being stifled, and no doubt not for the first time or encounter.
And the fire and the mayhem are a self inflicted wound, a man is unjustifiably killed openly and on the street. Everyone is suffering on the inside. This is an ache for justice. Let the scales fall from our eyes. Everyone is precious, everyone one has a life to give, everyone has a right to live. Offer an open hand to lift up your brothers and sisters. Surely it is better to be blind then to judge another by the sight of their skin?
There is wrong, there are wrongs to be corrected. There are people and there are streets, there is much yet to do.
The Oxygen of forgiveness and equality of truth is the simple soul solution and the way of life is love. Each in self examination needs to help bring about all that is true.
Let’s replace this red, yellow and black, with a red white and blue.

Universal truths and certainty, There is always a canon, a law. And ever Separate are the Holy, That is their virtue. But the cosmic circumstance, The Universal plan? The wilderness and the voices? All in line with their books. There is an arch and a Bishop A world of believers, And condemned unbelievers. The science and the spirit, The Galactic and the Quanta. The village and the crowd, The pocket in the shroud. Kindness is King Love and understanding. Everything else is imperfect.
